May Day!!

I'm listening to flourishing piano and watching blossoms on the trees sway, almost in time.
I have kittens to attend to...

Happy May Day, by the way!

In other news, what gives with this crazy 'swine flu'? You think it'll turn people vegetarian? Or at least pork-free, and loving it. I say, save our pigs, not because, as religious patriarchal idiots believe, pigs are 'dirty', but because genetically they are so similar to us, that eating pig can be seen as eating a cousin; I'm not sure if that's first or second cousin, but all the same.

And anyway, what the hell makes a pig any more dirty than say, oh, I don't Geesus, we are grotesque, pigs are elegant. That stupid religious concept of 'dirty' stems from the fact that no one wanted to eat roting meat, or something pretty standard, but I still don't see why the pig gets insulted in the mix. Though, in truth I shouldn't complain too much, or even at all, because as long as the religious types see pig as 'dirty' it means the pig has that many fewer enemies to contend with, and that means more life for pigs!



  1. You don't actually get the flu from eating pork. That is a myth. The flu is transferred person to person, it only got it's name because it orginated in swine. However the strain going around is a mutation and only transfered by human to human contact, nothing to do with little piggys. But to be on the safe side, I would not let anyone play "This Little Piggie" on my toes for awhile lol jk

  2. Pigs are awesome and scary-smart creatures!
    As a devote vegetarian and animal rights advocate, I say we should be ashamed to eat them anyway you look at it.
    Swine Flu did in fact originate in our Porcine brethren, and it is our use/abuse of them in factory farming that has led us down this dark road.
    I say, any time we stupid, arrogant humans are befallen by an animal originated illness, I believe it's the animal's revenge.
    Good on them for all we jerks have done to them in the name of 'dominion'.
    And yes, L' Chaim to you, too, Trav!
